Cornerstone Learn - Offline Materials - Overview
With this enhancement, users of the Learn app can also download mobile-enabled materials that have been configured for offline use. These downloaded material training items can then be launched offline and consumed, and users can mark them complete once the internet connection is restored.
The following file types can be made available for download and offline consumption:
- Click here for the Cornerstone Learn for iOS Starter Guide!
- Click here for the Cornerstone Learn for Android Starter Guide!
The following exclusions apply to this functionality:
- Materials uploaded with a source that is a YouTube URL are not available for download, as this violates YouTube's Terms of Service.
- Materials uploaded with a source that is a URL that requires the user to authenticate before accessing, such as an Excel document hosted on OneDrive or GoogleDrive, are not available for download.
Materials uploaded with a source that is a .zip file are not available for download.
Materials uploaded with no source are not available for download.
If a user attempts to download a material that was uploaded with an unsupported file type, they will receive the error message, "Unsupported Content Type: File type not supported for download."
An administrator must first ensure offline content is enabled via Offline Preferences and then select the Available Offline option for materials via the Course Catalog in order for training items to be downloadable in the app. This enhancement is available for both the iOS and the Android versions of the Cornerstone Learn app. This enhancement does NOT apply to the legacy Cornerstone Mobile app.
